starting with our attorney general come as secretary of education, secretary of homeland security, secretary of health and human services, kathleen sebelius. and we met with a range of 2200 -- 229 groups, representing a wide range of his crewmembers including many from new york, cities and states to gun safety advocates, victims of the shootings both down in virginia as well as in colorado. sportsmen's organization, hunters, gunowners. educators, retailers and public health officials. i spoke to many of the u.s. on as the governors and the county executive and no group is more consequential or incidental in shaping the document was put together for the president in this room. for those of you and other stakeholders after hundreds of hours of work and research done by experts in the justice department and department of homeland security and elsewhere come after every idea what that will make to gather dust on the shelves of some agency of government. a set of principles emerged that there is not universal agreement on, but overwhelming consensus and they were the foundation of the
dedicated their lives to serving the others. i mother was a special-education teacher. [cheers] my dad worked on the army base. my parents were crystal clear about what they wanted for us and that was an education. so a lot of what we did to give back was in the educational arena. i love that president obama has the same values. he knows that, for our nation, and education cannot be a luxury. it will strengthen the middle- class and strengthen the work force that will keep us innovated. if you're thinking about how you can search or how you can follow the president's example to honor this national day of service, start with this. make a difference in one child's life. mentor a student. donate a book to a library, donate supplies to a school. volunteer at an afterschool program. i am here because i have someone looking out for me. i'm telling you how important my education was. someone was pushing me to succeed. but i want to make sure the next generation has that as well. so last year, when i launched the eva longoria foundation, i focused on helping advance latinas in education. a bel
read your articles every day for the past year or two. you have educated me. you have enhanced my knowledge of a lot of things that i have heard that comes out of the republicans or conservative talk-show hosts by criticize obama. after reading your article, i found out what i hear on a rush limbaugh and the michael savage show was absolutely a lie. host: you give us an example? caller: a whole solyndra tuition. i found out the facts by reading your article in our local paper. the whole solyndra thing started with the bush administration. guest: thanks for the kind words. i am glad that you are reading them in your local paper one thing we are trying to do, as much as we can, is get our work out in different ways. we have partnerships with television stations. have partnerships with newspapers. the one you are read for into in atlanta uses the truth-o-meter on state and local officials. i am glad to hear you are reading our work and their work and i am happy our word is getting out host:politifact looked at issues -- looks at issues like energy. what to do find overall? guest: a l
. there is a disadvantage to a piecemeal bill, if you pass, for example, issues for educated people to get a visa, and they're taking care of, you lose a certain amount of support for the other issues. i do not think we should decide that. i think the senator is doing a great service by raising this issue. i think our colleagues at this meeting, i met this morning with the person -- he and i actually talk a lot. i believe we should move forward on all of the arrangements so that the hill will develop an understanding about all of these issues and finally decide whether they will do it in one, too, or three pieces. that is the least of our worry. the fact is they do it. we will continue to talk about a comprehensive bill. >> i am delighted that senator rubio is helping folks take the issue of immigration reform as seriously as he is taking it. he is providing leadership on that and we are appreciative. i think it is great to see movement on both sides of the aisle. whether or not it is comprehensive or individual pieces is to be determined by leadership in the house and senate in consultation with the presi
, six teachers and educators were taken from us at gun point. an act of senseless and incomprehensible violence struck at the heart of our families, of our schools, of our communities across the country. earlier this month shortly after newtown, all members of congress took an oath to protect and defend the constitution and the american people. to protect and defend, that is our first responsibility. today leaders of the house democratic caucus have come together to fulfill that duty to confront the challenge of gun violence in our society to enact, to ensure the safety and security of our communities. under the leadership of congressman thomson, mike thompson, our gun violence prevention task force keeps growing in number. our colleagues are submitting recommendations for legislation, the task force is working with outside organizations, and sharing the latest information on gun violence and steps we can take and must take to end it. today to strengthen the efforts of this task force and our democratic caucus, we will hear from americans with personal and professional experiences with
career she has shown a constant and loving commitment to education and improving the lives of children. in addition to having served as superintendent of schools in three different connecticut communities, janet has served as a teacher, a school counselor, and a school psychologist. i met janet in the fire house which was the emergency center of newtown, connecticut on the afternoon of the shooting. janet was grieving. she was there with parents of children who didn't know if their children were going to come home. as we know, 20 of them did not. the next morning this brave woman sat around a conference table with members of her community and began plan on how to protect those children and their family. how to reopen the school and get children back to learning. she was putting sandy hook community first, the teachers, the children, and those families. she did it all the time with her heartbroken for her friend who is were cut down on that terrible day. janet, i know you will provide invaluable expertise to us. you are an expert on children, on teaching, but most importantly, and for o
are back in class. using a middle school building in a nearby town for now, while educators figure out the future of the school district and how to keep the children of sandy hook together. >> we're very strong. we're a strong community. you know, we're going to have our bumps along the way. but we're working hard together, and that's what's important. >> one month later, with a national debate on gun control under way, some families in newtown are eager to have a voice in the debate. >> the horror of knowing that these are innocent 6-year-olds and 7-year-olds for the most part who were so grievously harmed and killed by a man who was flawed in his judgment, had access to an assault weapon and other weapons as well. we need to have courage as a society to ask those hard questions. do we have the right controls in place? if not, let's take some action. >> residents of this community say they refuse to be remembered only for their loss. they hope the name newtown will be forever known not for this deadly shooting but as a turning point for change. we'll be talking throughout the evening
investments in education and manufacturing, immigration reform, gun safety. so on the issues the president intends to really push and focus on, there's massive support in the country even among republicans. let's not lose sight of that, and that's why we're going to do a better job in the second term-- while we're going to do all we can to work with congress and negotiate, to also make sure the american people are connected to what's going on here. i think to really get the kind of change here in washington the american people are going to demand it. but there is really, i think consensus around eye lot of the issues around the country >> what about the idea the republicans have said they will go along with the three-month extension on the debt ceiling increase? are you going to be-- does that help? >> well, it's helpful that they have now dropped their demand, that the only way they're going to pay the country's billes, they themselves racked up, would be to extract some concessions. we've got to never again have this threat to the global economy and our economy because congress may not p
spend on everything from education to public safety less as a share of the economy that has been true for a generation. that is not a recipe for growth. we have to do more to stabilize the finances over the medium and long-term, and also spur more growth in the short term. i have said i am hoping to making modest adjustments to programs like medicare to protect them for future generations. i also said we need more revenue for tax reform by closing loopholes for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we consult the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. it turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue, and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they do not think it is fair to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care or a scientist to shut down like that saving research so that a multi millionaire investor can take less in tax rates then a

charts. now the way we are going, in terms of the percentage of g.d.p., what we spend on education, what we spend on health research, what we spend on so many necessary programs in this country is going to go down. the trend line is already there. what the republicans are essentially saying is to push it further. have further consequences in terms of health research. does that make sense? do the american people want that? the answer is no. we have to have balance. the problem within the republican conference of the house is there is too much imbalance. host: do you agree with this editorial -- guest: no one is suggesting relying only on taxation of the very wealthy. that is a sham target. no one is saying that. but let me point out, if we look at what has happened to middle-income families -- and i mentioned what is happening with the 401-k requirements, they're now dipping into their retirement on a massive basis. in 2010, the top 1% received over 90% of the income growth. that represents basically a very -- i represent basically a very middle-class district. i know the struggle to stay

't be where they are without having public education and building roads and everything. and you need to ask your g.o.p. where is yoush leader mitt romney. seems like he dropped out of sight. on the guns, i think they need to put inshunes on a gun like you do a car. host: so often we focus on the u.s. debt or deficit, we have exceeded now the dealt limit of $16.4 trillion. you can see in the upper left-hand side the debt clock. difficult choices on the debt if the u.s. think it's ceiling. the piece points out by mid february or early march the united states could face an unprecedented default unless it raises the debt ceiling. that was from tim geithner. further into the body of the "new york times" story i want to is share with you some of the numbers "the new york times" points out today. that could happen as early as february 15, if that happens by february 15 or early march, according to the by partisan policy center in analysis of what the government expects is $8 billion in revenue that day but it has $52 billion in spending that day, $6.8 billion in tax refunds, $3.5 in federal salari
and education and job training and science and medical research -- all the things that help us grow. now, step by step, we've made progress towards that goal. over the past two years, i've signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks ago, i signed into law more than $600 billion in new revenue by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money that we'll save in interest payments on the debt, all together that adds up to a total of about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years -- not counting the $400 billion already saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so we've made progress. we are moving towards our ultimate goal of getting to a $4 trillion reduction. and there will be more deficit reduction when congress decides what to do about the $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts that have been pushed off until next month. the fact is, though, we can't finish the job of deficit reduction through spending cuts alone. the cuts we've already made to priorities other than medicare, medicaid, social s
, we must act now. for grace. for the 25 other innocent children and devoted educators who had so much left to give. for the men and women in big cities and small towns of fall victim to senseless violence each and every day. for all the americans who are counting on us to keep them safe from harm. let's do the right thing. let's do the right thing for them and for this country that we love so much. thank you. i'm going to sign these orders. [applause] [applause] [applause] >> in president obama's proposals, he calls for background checks on all gun buyers, a ban on high-capacity magazines and federal funds for police officers a couple schools. these require congressional approval. he also used his presidential authority to enact 23 measures that do not require the backing of lawmakers. the second actions include ordering federal agencies to make data available for background checks, the atf, and directing the centers for disease control to research gun violence. after president obama announced his new legislation and executive orders, philadelphia mayor michael nutter and family membe
of education, research and development, innovation energy. there are things we can do about it but we have to do them together as a country. that's our goal. >> i do think it's important to put in context and remember just how dark the days were four years ago and how in the middle of that meltdown, people were thinking about going to caves and getting spam and guns. it was dark. not only the president, but the president working with george w. bush and others really pitched in and had to make very tough decisions and a lot of hard votes that got a lot of people unelected from office to get us through that. >> when we got our first economic briefings, i wanted to get some spam and go into a cave. i know what you're talking about. >> that's why this is such an opportunity, though, for the president right now. the problems we're talking about are structural. they've been there for a long time. this declining middle class has gone on for two decades. it isn't just the recession. that means investing. this is where the problem of the debt comes in. if you're going to get bet
interesting, and that's education. well-educated work force will be competitive across the world. that is the most critical investment. again, a role for the federal government, certainly a role for states and local governments, but a role for the american society that cannot be ignored. research education. and you drew it very, very correctly, and that is the manufacturing that comes from that. manufacturing matters, and how do you do? you need to be in front of it. and when you talk about the research and manufacturing technology, spot on. that is the third critical investment. the fourth one we talked about here, and that is infrastructure. these are four of the critical investments that we need to make as a society. some of that falls on individual companies encouraged by a research tax credit or encouraged by buy america in different ways, we encourage the tax policy. we did that. it was a democratic proposal. we did it three years ago and continued it and continued it in the recent fiscal cliff legislation where we provided 100% write-off for capital investment. that was fr
, and keeping carbon emissions low. then will's education. it is an issue we heard a lot about on that campaign trail four, five years ago. we haven't heard a lot about it since. the president did this. he promised to boost education by recruiting, quote, armies of teachers giving them better pay and making college more affordable. well, it has been a mixed record at best. harvard study in july of 2012 found the u.s. is trailing 24 other nations when it comes to the rate of educational improvement. teachers 'salaries rose slightly between 2009 and 2011 but during the same time, the hamilton project found that about 212,000 teaching jobs were cut. average tuition in a four-year public university climbed 15% between 2008 and 2010. then there are the issues that barely got mentioned. issues that ironically will make up the bulk of the president's second term. lower debt mentioned only twice in those three speeches. and they both came in only his 2007 announcement. he never mentioned the word debt in either of the dnc speech or first inaugural. the word deficit was mentioned only in his dnc speech
education in the entire world. if they cannot afford to do that, talk about $30 billion -- if we cannot afford to do that, i do not see what help we have upholding any sense of dignity, pretense of democracy, in the eyes of people in the rest of the world. [applause] >> i just have to add one thing to that -- one point i will add, to deny this to children is an act of thievery, but it is worse than stealing a car. this is an irreversible theft. you never get to live the second year of your life again. thatthis is it -- you get it once. then it is gone forever. i think the president fails to act on this aggressively, that dramatically, prophetically, to get this for us quickly -- i think is not just a budgetary issue. i think it is a theological abomination, a crime against the innocent. >> i agree. [applause] i say all the time, quoting -- the conversation could not be more timely. i sell the time, quoting dr. king, that budgets are moral documents. you can say what you say, but you are what you are. we know who you are when you put your budget on the table. we can see what your budget
health screenings and marijuana education camps and they also add and this is a swipe at you. you come from a family who made a fortune selling alcohol, a product that is objectively far more harmful than marijuana. how do you answer questions like that about enforcement treatments. >> two wrongs don't make a right. i know there's neurotoxicity with alcohol so we should keep kids from using alcohol, too. the point is we don't want to be fighting this war on all front, and i just think we ought to listen to the public health officials. there are implications here. >> what about the public? there seems to be a growing number of people in this country who are saying at the ballot box, you know what? we're tired of this. we want our pot. we want to be able to smoke in the privacy of our own homes. what about those people? >> well, that's why we should have a debate about it. i just don't think we've either got to lock them up or light it up. there's no middle ground here and that's what i hope to engender through this campaign. let's bring in public health officials and let's understand dr
